We are definitely in the icy throes of winter, which has led to darker nights and drizzly, cold days. However, winter is also a super exciting time, as with it comes fishing out your favourite winter wardrobe staples, Christmas lights and shopping, as well as an excuse for hot chocolate every day!
Whether you are a winter person who can’t wait for its perks, or you are already counting down the days until summer 2017, at this time of year it is crucial to start considering how you are going to protect your skin against the countless number of elements that the season brings along that can impact your complexion no matter what your skin type.
Luckily for you, experts in natural, high performance skincare, Origins are able to offer some winter skincare essentials that we can recommend for you to add to your daily routine that will help to stop your skin from feeling dry, dehydrated, dull or sensitive to the elements.
Origins GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturiser
Firstly, to prevent dryness, the Origins GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturiser instantly hydrates and revs up radiance - something that the harsh winter weather often eradicates. Recommended for all skin types, the moisturiser is lightweight and oil free with a gel-like consistency, and can be used AM and PM for optimal hydration.
The moisturiser also contains ingredients renowned for boosting the skin's radiance such as Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean, creating a vibrant glow. As well as smelling deliciously fresh and zesty, it also rapidly refreshes, instantly awakening your skin through intense hydration, without leaving it looking or feeling greasy.
This product brings an abundance of energy to your skin, helping to fight against dry and lacklustre skin to maintain your healthy glow in the depths of winter - a definite seasonal must, and why it is in your gorgeous lookfantastic Beauty Secrets Advent Calendar!
Origins Drink up™ Intensive Overnight Mask
Face masks can often be seen as a luxury for those rare times when you get some peace and quiet, and may even get the chance to run yourself a bath! That said, adding a hydrating face mask to your beauty routine during the winter months can be largely beneficial to your skin!
An ideal example of such a mask is Origins Drink up™ Intensive Overnight Mask, which helps to quench skin’s thirst. It can be applied at night before bed, leaving your skin to absorb the ultra-rich formula overnight, meaning you will awaken to moisturised, refreshed skin.
Containing Avocado, Apricot Kernel Oils and Japanese Seaweed, this mask provides the kick of moisture your skin will be calling out for, helping to relieve dry skin as well as building up moisture for the following days to come and preventing future dehydration and signs of ageing (it smells gorgeous too!)
If you’re looking for a quick fix for dry, dehydrated skin, then this mask is definitely the product for you- who doesn’t love a face mask anyway?
Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion
As well as lowering moisture levels in your skin, the cold winter weather also contributes to your complexion becoming irritated, leading to increased redness and sensitivity. If your skin is feeling particularly reactive at this time of year, look no further than Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion.
Dr. Weil’s extra-light treatment, containing Reishi mushrooms (renowned for their numerous medicinal benefits, as well as containing copious amounts of anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties), is unrivalled in soothing and calming skin, reducing redness, cleansing and nourishing all at the same time. The luscious scent of lavender further contributes to the overarching feeling of calmness the treatment creates, whilst promising to leave your skin feeling healthy, clean and refreshed.
